Rose McGowan Lashes Out At Jeff Bezos for "Weinstein Bailout"
Fresh from her temporary Twitter ban, actress and alleged victim of Harvey Weinstein, Rose McGowan, lashed out at Amazon's Jeff Bezos for allegedly working to help cover up Weinstein's history of sexual assault allegations — and said that she told him she was raped by the disgraced Hollywood mogul.
This is the first time that McGowan has point-blank and publicly accused Weinstein of raping her.
Reports the Daily Mail: "Rose McGowan is claiming that Amazon optioned a television series from her only to kill it while still in development after she voiced her concern about a possible move the company was making to bailout 'Weinstein.'"
"'I told the head of your studio that HW raped me. Over & over I said it. He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof,' said McGowan on Thursday in a tweet directed at company founder Jeff Bezos."
"'I had already sold a script I wrote to your studio, it was in development. When I heard a Weinstein bailout was in the works ... I forcefully begged studio head to do the right thing. I was ignored. Deal was done. Amazon won a dirty Oscar.'"
